I have just discovered this site. I served in VR-7 Moffett Field and was transferred to VR-22 Moffett just before leaving active duty July 1966. This was great duty. I learned about VR-7 from LCDR Dolan when I was in VW-13 Argentia. I am now fighting the VA for Agent Orange prostate cancer disability. They say I have to prove I was in Vietnam. I was there many times over the 3 year period often into Da Nang,Bien Hoa and Phu Kat which were heavily sprayed. Any help is appreciated. Bob Neal LT USNR-R 655865 916-872-8295

Started out as AN and ended up as AE2. Loved the area. Felt guilty for being stationed stateside while friends of mine were freezing in Korea....asked to be transferred to the fleet but was told I was "4-engine trained" and that was that. Ended up getting married while at Moffett. Many good memories of the area.

Have not been on this site for a number of years. It was GREAT duty. Just saw a post from Ron Thomson who also mentioned Ralph Templeton and Dick Sellers. Ralph was a great fast softball pitcher and he and Dick could drink some beer. A bunch of us "sparkys" had more than a few beers while we shot darts in the bars over in Brown's Mills. It was the beginning of 40 + years in aviation. After VR-6 I was at NAS Quonset Point, RI in VS-32 my last year. Then stayed there as Navy civilian emp. for 9 years as an Aircraft Instrument Mech. on AD Skyraiders, A4 Skyhawks and A6 Intruders. Next 23 years in MIA with Eastern Airlines (Inst. Mech & Tech Writer). Last 7 with Carnival Air and Pan AM in Fort Lauderdale as Mgr. Sched. Maint. Planning for 727's.

I was trying to get some information about my father. David Rea served around 1951 to 1955. I know he was stationed in Hawaii and California, but I am not sure what squadron he was in. If there is anyone who has any information about him, that would be great!

I'm trying to reach anyone who served with or knew my father, Chief Aviation Metalsmith LeRoy "Tim" Timmons. He served in VR-3 from just prior to the airlift until he retired in 1955.
Thank you
